2016 Helen Sheehan Book Prize

We will begin accepting submissions for the 2016 Sheehan YA Book Prize in May 2015. The winner will join Morris Award Finalist The Carnival at Bray by Jessie Ann Foley as ERB’s second YA title.

Submissions will be carefully reviewed by the editors. A trio of judges will pick the prize winning book. As with Carnival, editors will work closely with the winner to sharpen the manuscript, and design a wicked cover. And then we’ll throw all we can muster behind the winning author and book. Jessie’s success goes to show that an indie press can compete with the big boys. She is a deserving author, and we’re proud to have her represent the Sheehan Book Prize. Good luck revising your manuscript for submission. We're eager to read your submission.
